Lansing Ag DayLansing Ag Day is set for two weeks from now.  The new event will focus on the town's 40 farm businesses that account for over $20 million in annual revenues, about a third of the Town's land area, and 100 jobs.  Lansing Agriculture Committee Chair Connie Wilcox reported to the Town Board last week that the event will include small farm animals, tractors and machinery, and a wealth of activities and displays at the Town Hall campus on October 15th.

"Some history will be involved, but the day will focus more on current Ag activity in the town," Wilcox said.  "The farmers they are enthusiastic about it.  Promoting agriculture in this area is really important.  It’s the roots of this town."

Rock Steady BoxingParkinson's Disease is a progressive nervous system disorder.  It begins with tremors, then spreads to include stiffness, slowing movement, slurred, softer speech and degrading balance.  There is no cure for Parkinson's, but studies have shown that certain exercises can slow it down and mitigate the symptoms.  In Lansing Caroline Brown and Debbie Bosanko are helping Parkinson's sufferers to literally fight the symptoms with a unique boxing training program specifically designed for Parkinson's patients.

"Last year I saw a clip on CBS Morning News with Leslie Stahl," Brown says.  "Her husband has Parkinson's.  He has been involved with Rock Steady Boxing in New York City.  I saw it and was so inspired by it — it was exciting.  I didn’t know anyone with Parkinson’s at that time, but it was very inspiring.  I was starting to look at organizations to contribute money to, and looking at their record.  If I put my money toward bringing Rock Steady Boxing here I knew I was going to make a difference."

Within reach It is just dawn with the morning's light just beginning to steal through the window shades. Warm and comfortable under your down comforter your eyes crack open just slightly. The fresh smell of the fire coming from the living room let you know that the fire boy has been there, quiet as a whisper, getting your cabin warm to start the morning.

There is nothing quite as nice as a toasty cabin on a cool summer morning. The children wake almost as slowly as you. No chores this week. You're at The Waldheim. One of the 'Great Camps' of the Adirondacks.

dearmargaretDear Margaret: My wife of just over a year is extremely shy and a real homebody.  She's my best friend and I feel fortunate to have her in my life. I love to socialize and it's hard for me to get her to attend events and parties. I'm feeling stifled. She does have a few close girlfriends she feels comfortable with. How can I to strike a balance where she can feel secure in attending functions with me so I can get much needed socialization? I don't feel good about going out without her.

He discovered the wealth of innovation being generated in the green world and set out to write a weekly newspaper column. An audio podcast version soon followed, and now video.  One of the things The Lansing Star is proud of is that we are a green, electronic newspaper.  You don't even have to recycle the Star.  This feature offers more on how to make your world greener.  Every few weeks a new episode will be added so check back often.
